On Saturday we celebrated Bethany’s birthday. It is so hard to believe that she’s fifteen years old! Many of you know that Bethany has had a difficult, challenging, painful, and not very happy life since being diagnosed with brain cancer thirteen years ago.
My biggest wish after her being healed from cancer and being seizure free is for her to have as happy of a life as possible. Unfortunately, her unpredictable, aggressive, and sometimes violent behavior make that pretty difficult to accomplish!
I am really quite overjoyed to announce that despite a few glitches, Bethany managed to have a very happy birthday this year! In fact, this may be the first year that she ever actually got off the couch long enough to celebrate at her very own birthday party!
Please take a few minutes to enjoy our birthday collages and videos!
